Sisley Choi Typecast in Cop Roles

Enjoying a popularity rise after the broadcast of The Defected <鐵探>, Sisley Choi (蔡思貝) gave a convincing performance as an undercover cop. The 28-year-old actress’ father served on the Hong Kong Police Force, and it was Sisley’s childhood dream to become a police officer so her onscreen performances came naturally. After portraying a cop in four dramas within a year though, it’s obvious that Sisley is getting typecast.

Other than The Defected, Sisley previously portrayed a cop in Speed Of Life <鐵馬戰車>, PTU 2019, and Airport Strikers <機場特警>. She is once again cast as an undercover cop in her new drama, which will start filming in July.

With a bright personality and fit physique, the 28-year-old actress is perceived to be the best candidate for playing cop roles. Though she was criticized for her acting in Speed of Life, her appearance and image did suit her character and fostered a good impression of herself in enforcement roles.

Netizens believe Sisley is going to overtake Joyce Tang (滕麗名), who was also typecast after Armed Reaction <陀槍師姐>. Sisley has been promoted to become the female version of Ron Ng (吴卓羲), who has played many police officer roles in his acting career. Responsibilities vary across different departments within the Hong Kong Police Force, and Ron has portrayed a position in almost every department including regular and auxiliary police, PTU (Police Tactical Unit), undercover, and counter terrorism units.

    Y’know, back in the day, TVB didn’t focus so much on the types of jobs the characters had. They focused on personal growth and stories in spite of their chosen careers. My favorite series never put emphasis on the kind of profession my characters had. And because of that attention to character development, the storyline thrived.

    I wish I can say that never changed, but it did. Now every blockbuster series is about the professional stakes at work and how their personal lives are impacted by it. That minimizes the interpersonal connection between characters and stunts personal growth.
